April Apathy

April is usually the month of apathy...not quite spring, still cold and wet, far from any holiday... But yesterday's main headline made it even more so. I first learned about it at work through my rss news feed. I can't explain my reaction -- something like what I felt during 9/11. Disgusted, worried, saddened. I don't have family there, I don't have friends there, but I still felt an undeniable tremor of horror. Maybe it is because my husband is a professor, maybe because I am pretty recently out of college myself -- in any case, I was, and still am very sad.
